horrible news...

...I learned that one of our promising young Vancouver Canucks defencemen, Luc Bourdon was killed in a motorcycle accident in New Brunswick today. I was shocked to hear the news and my heart goes out to his family. I can only imagine what could have been.

Luc won a gold medal in 2006 with the Canadian Junior team and played 27 games in the NHL with the Canucks this past season...I hope he got to realize a few of his dreams in his short 21 years.

superstar hair challenge - episode 4...and no more

Sigh...I must report that Bryan was eliminated from the competition tonight. I don't think he deserved to go, but it appears the judges have their favorites...and I guess our small city boy just wasn't one of them.

Bryan, I think you represented very well! Kudos to you, my friend! You will always be my Superstar!

superstar hair challenge - episode 3

From bottom three last week, to top three this week! Bryan did a great job on his bride and is safe for another week.

We were just over on the island for hair cuts this past weekend and I was saying to Bryan that I thought he seemed to be more relaxed at this stage of the competition. He said it was actually exhaustion, as they didn't get much sleep during the process. are AWESOME and we love ya!

Episode 4 tomorrow...Avante garde...should be good.

superstar hair challenge - episode 2

This week was the man make overs. After a brief consultation with each stylist, the men got to choose their stylist and Bryan was picked first. That doesn't surprise us as he is a guy's guy.

He rocked the cut, but somehow (don't know what the judges were thinking) ended up in the bottom three.

In the redemption challenge, they had to transform these little kids into their idols, in 30 mins, and Bryan picked the little boy who wanted to look like Zac Efron.

Again he was fabulous and safe from ellimination. Next week brides! Go Bryan.

superstar hair challenge - episode 1

Phew...Bryan made it through the first show. My heart ached for him when he broke down in front of the judges when they asked him why he was there and he said, "My girls." He trys to be so tough, but I know deep down he is just a big ol' marshmallow!

I thought his first cut was really good and stood up to the rest of the competition. We got really nervous for him when the second competition was hair extensions and he said he had no experience with them. We never lost faith as we know how talented he is and he squeaked through to next week...but not before "throwing his model under the bus" (his words) by revealing her age on television. Oops...but hey, it's Bryan and I wasn't that surprised.

Can't wait to see what he does in the next episode!

Go Bryan Go!!
